Body Lift Surgery
Excess skin, whether on the face, neck, chest, abdomen, sides, thighs or arms can disfigure appearances like nothing else. This is where body lift procedures can help. These procedures are designed to remove excess folds of skin and streamline body silhouette. Body lift usually follows Liposuction, in which it is used for removal of excess skin from around the stomach region to give a slimmer, toned appearance.
In body lift surgery, performed on the abdomen, excess fat and skin are removed, and the walls of the stomach muscles are tightened. The procedure uses Superficial Fascia Suspension System (SFS) – via the dynamic Lockwood’s procedure – to elevate tissues, and hold the entire sculpture together to give a more upright and youthful appearance.
The procedure is also used for thigh lifts, buttock lifts, and sculpting the entire body in a band around the waist, including belt lipectomy.
